Want hot water whenever you need it? Pipe Masters specialise in making your water hot, wherever you are in the Bay of Plenty, Waikato and Manawatu. Technology has given us plenty of options. Check them out below and get in touch if you have any questions. We’re here to help.

Electric hot water

Electric is a simple way of heating hot water and your hot water cylinder does not need to be inside if you’re really struggling for space. The Pipe Masters team know all the ins and outs of electric hot water and are here to guide you.

Gas hot water

Both natural and LPG gas are available depending on where you live. The benefit of gas is that you can say goodbye to the days of running out of hot water because someone else has used it all. Gas can be combined with a storage tank and solar to create even more efficiency, and Pipe Masters can certify this gas work.

Heat pump (air to water)

Air to water heat pumps convert the same technology used in refrigerators to extract heat from the air and transfer it into the water. These units can operate down to -7°C and reduce energy use by up to 65% compared to a conventional electric storage hot water system. Contact Pipe Masters today about an air to water option for your home.

Hot Water Systems FAQs

Tips from the experts

What if your hot water cylinder is old?

You can check by what’s commonly known as the ‘Ajax’ valve – having a copper pipe sticking out of your roof or the obvious ‘low pressure’ label on your cylinder. You may still have excellent cold water pressure, known as an ‘unequal pressure’ hot water system. Looking to install tapware on this system? Ensure it is suitable for the pressure type.

What if water is running out of the pipe in the roof?

This means you have a pressure limiting valve releasing water through the valve. You need to either adjust the valve by turning the bottom screw to wind back the pressure, replace the washer inside or replace the valve and reset it. The last of which is the best option if the valve is quite old.

What if you have no hot water?

Start by checking the switch in the hot water cupboard has not been switched off. The next option is to check the circuit breaker on your switchboard has not tripped. This is normally labelled hot water. If both of these options are fine, then a) the thermostat or element (or both) has failed and will need to be replaced. Or b) the ripple control has tripped. The ripple control is a circuit normally on the main circuit board. It can be switched on and off by the power board to manage peak energy flows. These can fail sometimes, and your utility power supplier will come and replace it. An electrician can also get you up and running.

I had a roof heating system removed. My experience from start to finish was always professional and the guys every efficient. I have used Pipe Masters in the past and every time they have exceeded my expectations. Well done team!

I can’t speak highly enough about the service we received from Pipemasters, I called with an emergency on a Friday afternoon, and within an hour there was a tradesman at our place to fix the issue. The tradesman was extremely professional, friendly and good at his job. The woman I spoke to on the phone was very helpful also. Very reasonable pricing!! I highly recommend using pipe masters. Cheers guys

This is the third time Pipemasters has helped us with plumbing issues. Their service is consistently outstanding - we have been so impressed. The guys are knowledgeable, respectful and trustworthy. Costs are discussed up-front, and work is carried out in a timely manner with minimum disruption. The invoice was very detailed and transparent. We have been recommending them to our friends.
